California man kidnapped girl, 17, who worked with pals to nab him in their own unofficial operation: cops

A California man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping a girl who, with the help other female teens, lured the man — in an unofficial “sting operation” — to help expose him as an older man looking to sleep with underage girls.

Richard Dreyfus, 32, was contacted by a group of girls on social media and planned to meet up at a location in Vista. When at the spot on Sunday, Dreyfus convinced the 17-year-old girl, whom he allegedly kidnapped, to get into his vehicle to talk. Then he immediately drove away, officials said.

Dreyfus drove the girl several miles, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. During that time, the teen “was able to send a message for help to the group, who called law enforcement.”

Deputies were able to call Dreyfus’s cell phone and he pulled over. The teen quickly fled from his vehicle, investigators said, adding she was rescued “unharmed.”

Dreyfus was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sending harmful matter to a minor and communication with a minor for specific offenses.

“There does not appear to be any relationship between the suspect and victim outside of their communication through social media,” the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators said they “strongly” discourage members of the public to try to catch criminals.

“These types of situations can be extremely dangerous and should be handled by your local law enforcement agency,” officials said.

“The Sheriff’s Department takes all crimes against our children extremely serious and is committed to keeping our children and communities safe. If you have information involving a crime, please report it to your local law enforcement agency.”

California firefighters save dog stuck in culvert pipe by using treats

California firefighters saved an adventurous dog from inside a narrow culvert pipe on Tuesday using tools more powerful than the Jaws of Life: tasty treats.

The unnamed pup’s leg became stuck in a pipe off Kearsarge Mill Road in Alta, located about 60 miles northeast of Sacramento, CAL Fire’s Nevada-Yuba-Placer Unit wrote on Facebook.

Third suspect in murder of Joshua Brown, witness in Amber Guyger trial, sought in Louisiana; 2 arrested

Two of the three men wanted in connection to the killing of Joshua Brown, a key witness who testified in the high-profile murder trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, have been arrested while a third, Thaddeous Green, remained on the lam Wednesday morning.

The second suspect, Michael Mitchell, 32, was arrested by federal deputy marshals Tuesday night in Marksville, Louisiana, while Mitchell’s nephew, 20-year-old Jacquerious Mitchell, is in critical condition in a Dallas-area hospital with a gunshot wound.

Authorities believe the three men traveled from Alexandrian, Louisiana, to buy drugs from Brown, 28, in the parking lot of a Dallas apartment complex.

DALLAS POLICE NAME 3 SUSPECTS IN KILLING OF JOSHUA BROWN, WITNESS IN AMBER GUYGER MURDER TRIAL; 1 ARRESTED

Jecquerious Mitchell told the police that Brown shot him in the chest after an argument during the drug deal. Dallas Police Assistant Chief Avery Moore said that during the deal Green shot Brown twice.

Green left with Brown’s backpack and gun. Investigators also seized 12 pounds of marijuana, 149 grams of THC cartridges and more than $4,000 in cash during a search of Brown’s home. It was unclear how the three men came into contact with Brown or why they would have driven more than 300 miles from central Louisiana to purchase pot in Texas.

While there had been widespread speculation that Brown’s death had something to do with Guyger’s trial, Moore on Tuesday afternoon cautioned against it.

Even though an attorney representing Brown’s family previously said Brown had reservations about testifying in the high-profile Guyger trial, Moore said Brown’s killing had nothing to do with the case.

Brown, who lived in the same apartment building, testified about what he heard the night Botham Jean was murdered. Lee Merritt, an attorney representing Brown’s family, said Brown’s mother told him about her son’s reservations about his visibility in the Guyger trial. In November, Brown was wounded in the foot in a shooting that left a 25-year-old man dead outside a Dallas nightclub, The Dallas Morning News reported.

“He was concerned that the people who shot him there still wanted to do him additional harm,” said Merritt, who also represented Botham Jean’s family.

TEXAS JUDGE DEFENDS HUG, HANDING BIBLE TO AMBER GUYGER AS SHOW OF ‘LOVE AND COMPASSION’

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson and other officials had asked the public to refrain from speculating about the killing of Brown while police investigated. Meanwhile, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund Inc. requested an independent investigation into Brown’s slaying, calling it “deeply alarming and highly suspicious” in a news release.

Dallas police had no comment on calls for an independent investigation.

Guyger testified that in September 2018, after working a long shift, she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own and thought he was a burglar. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison for murder.

At the time of Jean’s shooting, Brown lived in the same apartment building as Guyger and Jean. Brown was killed at a different complex, investigators said.

Brown testified that on the night of Jean’s killing, he was in a hallway on the fourth floor, where he and Jean lived, and that he heard what sounded like “two people meeting by surprise” and then two gunshots.

At times during his testimony, Brown became emotional and used his T-shirt and tissues to wipe away tears. He said he had met Jean, a 26-year-old accountant from the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia, for the first time earlier that day.

Judge Tammy Kemp, who presided over Guyger’s trial, said Monday she was “saddened” and “stunned” to hear about Brown’s death, adding that “he seemed to be a very compassionate young man and I hate that his life has ended so soon.”

Brown, a Jacksonville, Fla., native, graduated from South Florida State College. Following college, he managed Airbnb units in California and Georgia and worked to get a similar business off the ground in Dallas. He had three children – a 6-year-old and two toddlers.

Los Angeles proposes ban on e-cigarettes, vaping devices

Westlake Legal Group Vaping100819 Los Angeles proposes ban on e-cigarettes, vaping devices fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/health/respiratory-health/stop-smoking fox-news/health fox news fnc/us fnc Brie Stimson article 2d2fc8eb-fa8b-56b2-8f20-1ed0984f0099

Officials at a Los Angeles city council meeting Tuesday proposed banning all e-cigarettes and vaping devices until they are deemed safe by the federal Food and Drug Administration, according to reports.

The potential move would follow places like San Francisco and Massachusetts that have enacted similar e-cigarette bans in the wake of a spate of lung illnesses thought to be linked to the products, The Los Angeles Times reported.

NEW YORK IDENTIFIES FIRST VAPING-RELATED DEATH AS BRONX TEEN

“The reports of illness and death caused by unregulated vaping devices is a public health crisis,” the motion introduced by Councilman Paul Koretz reads. “Los Angeles is not content to wait and do nothing as the numbers of illnesses and even deaths associated with unregulated vaping devices increases daily.”

Los Angeles County has already banned flavored e-cigarettes and menthol cigarettes, something states like Michigan and New York have done and the Trump administration supports.

At least 18 people have died from the recent lung illnesses, but the cause remains a bit of a mystery, according to The Times.

Experts who oppose the bans say that they will just push smokers trying to quit back to using cigarettes or illegal products.

“What bans like this are likely to do is increase the use of illicit products and decrease regulation, which ironically will expand the use of the products that are causing folks to get sick,” Northeastern University Professor Leo Beletsky told The Times.

A cute prospective three-year-old police recruit stood tall to meet members of a local police department in Oklahoma City Tuesday and show off his tiny uniform.

Carson impressed local officers from the Edmond Police Department, who were hosting their monthly Coffee with a Cop event, where residents attend to meet law enforcement, ask questions and strengthen community relationships.

The child showed off his uniform to Lt. Paul Phillips who joked, “he outranks me,” after noticing that the toddler had three stars on his jacket.

Carson then proudly blew his police whistle, as Phillips told him “that’s awesome” and that her “liked his outfit.”

Coffee with a Cop takes place on the second Tuesday of every month across Edmond and began in the town in June 2017.

The initiative was launched in Hawthorne, Calif. in 2011 as a way for officers from the Hawthorne Police Department to establish trust between the community and the police.

The homeowner called the police and the man was taken into custody. Erie police could not immediately be reached for comment, but authorities told the Daily News the suspect appeared to be under the influence of an undisclosed substance and was acting confused.

Illinois child, 9, to face 5 murder charges in deadly fire

A 9-year-old Illinois child has been charged with setting an April fire in a mobile home that killed three small children and two adults, according to reports Tuesday.

The unidentified juvenile has been charged with five counts of murder, two counts of arson and one count of aggravated arson, Woodford County State’s Attorney Greg Minger told the Peoria Journal Star.

The April 6 fire near Goodfield, southeast of Peoria, killed Kathryn Murray, 69; Jason Wall, 34; Rose Alwood, 2; Daemeon Wall, 2; and Ariel Wall, 1.

MICHIGAN BOY, 12, BURNED IN ‘FIRE CHALLENGE’ GAME, MOM SAYS

The fire began at around 11 p.m. on a Saturday night, the paper reported. By the time firefighters arrived a few minutes later, the trailer was engulfed in flames.

Autopsies revealed they all died of smoke inhalation, the paper reported.

Katrina Alwood, 27, and her juvenile son survived.

She and Jason Wall were engaged to be married, the paper reported.

They were the parents of Ariel and Daemeon. Rose was a niece. Muray was Katrina Alwood’s grandmother.

Minger said he decided to charge the boy after reading through various authoritative reports about the fire numerous times, the Journal Star reported.

DULUTH SYNAGOGUE FIRE WAS ACT OF ARSON BY 1 PERSON, APPARENTLY NOT HATE CRIME: POLICE

“It was a heavy decision,” he said. “It’s a tragedy, but at the end of the day it’s charging a very young person with one of the most serious crimes we have.

“But, I just think it needs to be done at this point, for finality.”

Minger said the boy will be subject to a bench trial, before a judge and without a jury.

The child would face five years’ probation if convicted and any probationary period would not go beyond the age of 21.

Imprisonment is not an option.

“Probation, given the age, is about the only outcome that could happen here,” the prosecutor told the paper.

Security officer shoots, kills suspected burglar at Dallas Apple store, police say

A security guard fatally shot an armed burglar inside a Dallas Apple store Tuesday morning, according to police.

The shooting took place around 2:30 a.m., police said in a press release. At that time, the store was open because of overnight construction, Fox 4 reported.

A police spokesman said the store’s back door was open so construction workers could go in and out. The suspect, clad in body armor and armed with an assault rifle, entered the rear of the building “in an attempt to commit a robbery,” Sgt. Warren Mitchell said.

The burglar then allegedly tried to disarm a security guard who was sitting by the door. The security guard pulled out his weapon and fired “multiple shots at the suspect,” Mitchell said.

The burglar fled the store but collapsed in an alley. He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.
